The Rare Barrel Avec des Amis

What the brewers say

"A blend of golden sour beer, mixed-culture saison, and hopped wheat beer aged in oak barrels and fruited with fresh white peaches and white nectarines."

What our panel thought

"Aroma is nice with a fair amount of Lactobacillus coming through and a hint of peaches. A touch of Brett funk. A nice honey character. All in all, an exquisitely good fruited American sour."

What our editors thought

"Brilliant and vivacious with mild acidity and lychee/kiwi note like a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit serves the flavor, rather than the flavor echoing the fruit."
